To help approximately three million South Sudanese by providing critical life-saving support and helping people to better cope with shocks from conflict, drought and flooding. This programme aims to save the lives of an estimated two million people who will receive at least one form of humanitarian assistance; and build the capacity of an estimated one million people to recover and cope better with shocks. Over five years this programme will provide food, shelter and access to water and health services to millions of vulnerable people, including women and children.
To provide a government led effective health system that will deliver improved access to quality health services across eight states in South Sudan with a specific focus on reducing maternal and child mortality. The Health Pooled Fund (HPF3) will reduce maternal and under-five mortality rates in South Sudan, through (i) the delivery of a basic package of health and nutrition services; (ii) promoting community engagement in health as a public good and (iii) supporting local health systems stabilisation.
To help up to 10 million people, especially women and children, in developing countries cope with extreme climate and weather events such as droughts, cyclones and floods (climate extremes). This will be achieved by doing three things. By making grants to civil society organisations to scale up proven technologies and practices in the Sahel, sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia that help people withstand, and more quickly recover, from climate extremes. By identifying the best ways of doing this, and share this knowledge globally to increase the programme’s overall impact. By supporting national governments to strengthen their policies and actions to respond to climate extremes. These will all contribute to the Millennium Development Goals on the eradication poverty and hunger, and environmental sustainability, and also respond to the Humanitarian and Emergency Response Review recommendation that DFID should integrate the threat from climate change into a Disaster Risk Reduction.
To provide a government led effective health system that will deliver improved access to quality health services across six states in South Sudan with a specific focus on reducing maternal and child mortality.
To increase access and the capacity for Girls’ in South Sudan to stay in school and complete primary and secondary education by providing them with a broad package of support. This will benefit 240,000 girls, 300,000 boys and 2,600 schools. This contributes towards our MDG’s by allowing more children to complete a full course of education and will result in improved learning outcomes, completion rates and a decrease in drop-out/repetition rates in all 10 states of South Sudan by the end of 2018.
To reduce hunger gaps, improve long-term food security and mitigate conflict among 400,000 rural poor in five states of South Sudan. By working together beneficiaries earn food or cash in return for identifying and building community assets (such as irrigation ponds). This enables communities to develop and manage their resources against extreme climate damage and shocks. This will contribute to Sustainable Development Goals 1, 2, 13, 15 and 16 to end poverty and hunger; take action on climate; protect life on land and; promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development.
To tackle Visceral Leishmaniasis (VL) also known as Kala –Azar, in South Asia and East Africa, this disease is spread by sandflies and when untreated leads to death in 95% of cases. The programme will increase access to effective prevention and prompt treatment for VL and will accelerate progress towards the elimination of VL in South Asia.
To catalyse private sector entrepreneurs in Africa to innovate and find profitable ways of improving market access and functioning for the poor- especially in rural areas. Its focus will be on agricultural, targeting agribusiness, and access to finance working with providers of financial services
The purpose of the programme is to provide funds and technical oversight for health services to select and train community-based distributors (CBDs), the majority of whom are women, to identify and treat and/or refer children under the age of 5 years who suffer from the main causes of child death, namely, malaria, pneumonia (acute respiratory infection), diarrhoea and severe acute malnutrition (SAM) at the community level in hard-to-reach villages in order to contribute to a reduction in under-five child death rate in South Sudan.
This programme aims to place temporary members of HMG staff, in both Juba and London, to coordinate internally and engage externally on Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (ARCSS). In addition, it includes a project that will allow provision of both long term and short term technical support to the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC) and the Ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangements Monitoring Mechanism (CTSAMM), as well as provide ad hoc training courses or support to activities relating to the implementation of ARCSS
